Week 1: Your first class is from 9:30 am - 11:00 am. You will have a 30-minute break and return for a second class from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm. You will have a 1-hour lunch break and return for a third 90-minute class from 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm. During these classes, you are learning anything from TEFL methodologies, different types of lesson plans, grammar, teaching different levels of English, teaching different ages, and much more.
Week 2-4: You will still have your two morning 90-minute classes. Rather than a lunch break and a third 90-minute class in the afternoon, you will have a large break from 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm. This break is your time, and you can use it how you please. Most students eat lunch and return to the school to work on their lesson plans, use our resources, and get extra help from teachers. At 5:00 pm, Czech students that sign up for our monthly English lessons come to the school. You will teach a 45-minute English lesson and observe two of your classmates teach a 45-minute lesson as well. One of your teachers will observe your lessons and will provide you with feedback once completed. Each week, you will teach a different level of Czech students - Beginner, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate, Upper-Intermediate, and Advanced. You will teach Monday - Thursday evenings. On Friday, you get out early, and we culminate the end of a successful week with a fun activity!
There are 2 options when purchasing your ticket to Prague:
One-way ticket: Most people choose to buy a one-way ticket into Prague if they are planning on staying and teaching in Europe. There is a small chance that you will have problems with a one-way ticket since you won’t have a long term Visa allowing you to stay in Europe after 90 days when you initially fly into the city.
Round Trip ticket: A round trip ticket is your safest bet, as the airline and customs cannot give you problems with a round trip ticket. If you are buying a roundtrip ticket, please make sure that your return is within 90 days. You can change this date (extend it) once you arrive in the city, but the airlines might not let you fly if the ticket was purchased with a return longer than 90 days.
